distance themselves from george w. bush because it was the thing to do. numbers do not lie. he became very unpopular. parties to not to embrace figures and politicians to become unpopular. my view is that a lot of distress over bush' domestic agenda from which they fled the gangnam could 2005. is that an ancillary -- it had been an ancillary result of failure to defend iraq and have a favorable recognition. >> what might have been a successful policy agenda. >> i think the entire country stopped listening to president bush which would be good for the country when it lost faith that he was managing the war effectively. he found it more difficult to get hearings on some of the issues. a lot of people on the right to it came at bush on a lot of these domestic issues. they were feeling extremely distressed about what was going on in the war and did not want to turn on the war. we have troops in the field. this seems like a noble endeavor. they were angry at him for throwing them on the defensive for the prosecution of the war. as a result of the republican party getting thrown on its heels of

: many people are saying that this president could use george w. bush on the issue of immigration because he is that as a key domestic agenda item on for his second term and he felt pretty good president bush help him on immigration with republicans? pick it'm sure he could is a question of whether he wants to play that role. there are plenty of other surrogates who could play this role, and the most important one is marco rubio, who was not only of hispanic origin, but also younger and can appeal to this whole dreamers movement, and he is right here in washington serving in congress and drafting legislation and working on a bipartisan basis. there is also a large number of democrats and republicans who, while we don't hear about it, are working behind the scenes, like lindsey graham and charles schumer, on putting some kind of legislation out there. certainly bush, he decided to step forward, could play a constructive role. it is not like he is going to let democrats just because he decided to put himself out there on the issue. it would only help in terms of bringing republicans on boar

going through what happened with president george w. bush with the iraq war and president clinton with his personal indiscretion with 3407b monica lieu win aewinskylewinsk. why have presidents struggled so much in a second term? >> i think we have to look at the percentages, erin. to get to the second term you probably did pretty well in your first term, right? over the course of eight years it's not that unusual for a president to stupble or have a problem. so i think we've got to look at presidents over the whole eight years and get away from this second term curse. >> familiarity does breed contempt. we're not on too much. george washington had a lousy second term relatively speaking. he was the father of his country. no parties, unanimous choice of the american people. we don't like to talk about it, but people were taking a lot of potshots at him in the second term because that's when the jeffersonian republican party emerged. it was a tough time. he wanted to quit after his first term. they wouldn't let him, and he was sorry he hadn't. >> and they just throw things at him. t

be true. george w. bush, who won two terms, as a republican president, i would ask people politely in 1997, who do you like in 2000? george w. bush, that is terrific. why? he can win. you are right. he raised all of that money. how did he raise all that money? it becomes circular. he can win, the democrats never ask that question. jimmy carter, bill clinton, barack obama. they were all told, you cannot win. how many times was jimmy carter told, you cannot win? how many times was barack obama told you cannot win? they all won. two of them twice. they won with people you had never heard of before. we do not have anything like that in the republican party. we throw good money after bad. dole and mccain and romney use the same people. staff infection. it will not matter who you put in front of them if you have the same people pulling the same strings.

to have people in and out of house. george h.w. bush took a polaroid camera and have congressmen sit on the lincoln bedroom and take a picture of it knowing no congressman was going to throw away a picture taken by the president of the united states. does it lead immediately to post partisan hall hall awe, absolutely not. the politics is about giving as well as taking. what is practicable must control what is pure theory and the president charlie your question's exactly right, i do think this president continues to think and overly theoretical ways about how he speeds his time. >> rose: i want to come to the legacy of the question of of course and equality and declining standard of living. jon meacham in we make the case ronald ronald reagan was a great president what makes him a great president. >> i think what made ronald reagan a great president is his life experience as a union negotiator was put to work in foreign policy. and what do you do if you're a negotiator you ask for a hundred percent and several for 50. you say the union reserves the right to lie cheat and steal he cal

benefit cuts. gale walenski, the former c.m.s. administrator under george h.w. bush, said in 2011, "if we don't redesign what we're doing, we can't just cut unit reimbursement and somehow think we're getting a better system." now, a lot of my colleagues give great credence to the private sector. in the private sector, one of the leaders in health care is george halvorson who recently stepped down as chairman and c.e.o. of kaiser permanente, one of the biggest and best health care companies in the country. here's what he said -- "there are people right now who want to cut benefits and ration care and have that be the avenue to cost reduction in this country and that's wrong. it's so wrong, it's almost criminal. it's an inept way of thinking about health care." so from republican administrators to private sector leaders, the message is the same -- we have to solve this as a system problem. let me give a couple of examples of how you might want to go about doing this. as one example of the significant savings to be found in our health care system, a "washington post" columnist recently wrote
